Has to be when the pattern for Girdle of Ruination dropped for me while running SSO dailies . It was my first epic world drop, I was on my main, who is a tailor that had max rank at the time, and I'm a completionist. No gear token, world armor/weapon epic, boss drop, or other kind of epic loot has excited me NEARLY as much as when this pattern dropped for me. After oggling it in my backpack for about a minute, I learned it once I got over the shock!
It's not exactly epic loot I won, but it was the epic feeling of our success and hard work of farming for half a year. What am I talking about? The MAIN HAND Warglaive.After 6 months of killing Illidan, there was no Warglaives on the Horde side and only 2 on the Alliance.It had been a long night of silly mistakes accompanied by silly wipes, but we finally killed Illidan, about 15 minutes over the end time of the raid. We were that determined to kill him, and every time we killed Illidan a sense of anxiousness brewed deep inside all of us.. will it drop tonight?Every kill someone would say "tonight is night". On this very night, tonight was the night. We finished up killing Illidan, 11 of us left alive. Vent was quiet. Then, all of a sudden, one of the ladies of the guild screamed down the microphone "A WARGLAIVE! WE HAVE A WARGLAIVE!" At that, everyone who was alive ran to the corpse and checked, and it was there. When I saw it, I had goosebumps all over my body. I was among the raid group to receive the first Warglaive on the Horde. I was among on the raid group who had farmed this boss for 6 months and had no success. I was among the only raid group who could kill Illidan on this server, and now we had something to show for it.Not winning, but seeing that Warglaive in the loot box just makes your jaw drop. The first real orange I had seen drop in my World of Warcraft days, and it felt extremely good to know that all our hard work had finally payed off.
I think it would have to be when I was in heroic Magister's Terrace with guild. I think it was my first or second run there on heroic and http://www.wowhead.com/?item=35513 dropped. I won and was so happy it looks awesome and funny on my tauren.
My most epic drop had to be the time we were doing Molten core and both bindings dropped in a single run.
First Epic win ever was for me when we downed gruul the first time it was just like WOOT! and i had a great feeling.
Definitely my Arcanite Fishing Pole after months of farming and frantic fishing. My Hook of the Master Angler I chose for my second fishing contest prize comes in at a close second, but the utter euphoria I felt after my first win is unprecendented.
When Hammer of the Narru droped in Gruul's Lair, I almost giggled like a girl when I got the loot. It's my main DPS weapon on my Paladin in. I still use it in WotLK, but sadly there no Gems in it. I have know idea what I want for it, either Healing gems or Ret Gems. Also I want a kick @$$ aura on it.
